Church Base will take care of publishing your app directly to Apple's App Store, but we will need some information from you to get started.

Log into your dashboard and select the "Publishing" section in the left side menu.

To add the necessary information to publish your app to Apple's App Store, click "Edit Information" within the Apple's App Store block.

Apple Account

If you have not already enrolled in the Apple Developer program for your organization, you will need to do so. The steps to enroll can be found here.

Once you have enrolled in the Apple Developer program and your account has been approved, check "Yes" in the appropriate field, and invite Church Base to be an admin on your account.

Next, fill in your account details. We will need to know your Apple Developer Organization Name and the name of the Account Holder on your account.

Contact Information

If we run into any issues during the publishing process, we may need to reach out to your Account Holder for assistance. Please provide:

  • Full Name

  • Phone Number

  • Primary Email Address

  • Developer account organization

Publish Information

This information will appear publicly in Apple's App Store. We will need:

  • App Store Title: This is the name that your app will appear as in stores. You are limited to 30 characters, including spaces.

  • Store Description: Include information about your organization, and what the users can expect once they download your app.

  • Keywords: Keywords help your app be found faster in the App Store. Adding your town name, pastor's name, or organization name variants can help your congregants easily find and download your app.

  • Store Logo: Please upload a store icon sized at 1024x1024 px in PNG format. The logo that you upload will be used as the visual identifier of your app in the App Store.

Submitting to Apple's App Store

When all of your information has been filled out and the "Ready for Submission" bar is fully blue, your app is ready to submit to the App Store.

Please note that even though changes have been made to the Apple's App Store block, they have not yet been submitted for publishing. If you see the following error message, your app has not been added to our publishing queue:

To submit the app for publishing, click the "Yes. Submit for Publishing" button, read the information presented in the pop-up, and close out of the pop-up once read.

Once you have submitted your app, you will notice a timeline appear in the Apple's App Store block.

Submitted: Your app has been submitted, and our publishers are working hard behind the scenes to submit your app to the App Store.

In Review: Our publishers have successfully submitted your app to the App Store. Hooray, a live app is on the way!

Live: Your app is now live! A link to view and download your app in the App Store will appear within the block, and you will be sent a message notifying you of the live status.
